Duckworth Calls for Trump to Be Removed From Office Immediately


[WASHINGTON, D.C.] — U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) released the following statement calling for the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump from office:

“I voted to convict and remove Trump from office because I believed any Commander in Chief willing to abuse his power posed an unacceptable threat to our Republic.

“Unfortunately, those fears were validated yesterday as Trump incited a violent mob that sought to block the American people’s elected representatives from fulfilling a critical constitutional responsibility.

“It’s clear Donald Trump is a threat to our nation and he should be removed from office as soon as possible. The Cabinet should immediately invoke the 25th Amendment, but if they fail to do so then Congress must immediately begin impeachment proceedings to safeguard our Republic.”
